How many here knew

that Obama had secretly ended sanctions against Iran?
The man either doesn't "get" or simply will not accept the tripartite nature of the US government, and congress' role...as representatives of the people...in official decisions and policies.
We did not elect Obama as king...we elected him as president and the holder of that office has LIMITED authority without the approval of congress.

now he won't get his war with Iran.
I'm sure Dick Cheney told him it'd pay for itself!

Don't EVER pass up the opportunity to have the last word. Post something...ANYthing...even if it's realy stupid.

What's even more telling...
Is that Israel (one of our strongest allies in the region) did not know that America had lifted the sanctions without any concessions regarding nuclear arms.
But hey, let's talk some more about the tea party. That's so much more important.

And we are now preparing for a breakthrough...
as early as later today, on an agreement with our NATO partners, to have Iran start meeting the demands of dismantling Iran's nuclear weapons ambitions.
It's called "diplomacy."

No, it's called gullible
and you rose-colored glasses wearing left wingers certainly are that.

a major foreign policy victory for NATO and you're belittling the U.S. and our allies.
The relief from sanctions shuts down Iran's uranium enrichment program -- something the U.S. has been working toward for years.

You're stark raving nuts
Just today Iran said nothing would stop them from enriching uranium. That doesn't sound to me...or to any sane person...like they're abandoning their nuclear weapons goals.
Only committed...or should be committed...left wingers would imagine that Iran would cooperate with the international community and give up on their nuclear ambition.

Since when has a United States president been responsible for international diplomacy?
Next some president will just fly off to China to open relations with them without the approval of John Boehner.

Pick up a paper, cruzo...
the deal on the table is to suspend the uranium enrichment for six months while the allies soften -- not suspend -- the sanctions.
Let me ask you. If you didn't want the sanctions to bring about Iran shutting down it's enrichment program -- what did you THINK they were for?

The thrust of the report...
the link to which I posted yesterday...details Obama's secret deal with Iran virtually ELIMINATING the sanctions that have been isolating the rogue country in financial matters. That is NOT what is required. The sanctions need to stay in place until Iran is willing to cooperate with the international community.
I understand what panty-waisted, kumbaya-singing liberals are wishfully thinking but you idiots are ignoring what Iran said yesterday...and that was they WOULD NOT forego uranium enrichment.

what did you think the sanctions were about if not aimed to do exactly what NATO and the U.S. are accomplishing right now with the negotiations?

ARE YOU SERIOUS?????
Nobody can be that stupid. Obama et al are accomplishing NOTHING. Iran will stall, pretend to negotiate and continue doing what it's doing until it develops a nuclear weapon. Bebe Netanyahu knows what's happening and he's REALLY pissed at Obama.
The sanctions were working...why in the hell do you think Iran was complaining so loudly?
I just cannot fathom a president being so abjectly moronic as to roll back a policy that was WORKING.

This deal falls well short of what the president and the secretary of state promised. This deal hurts Israel and further weakens our relationship.
There is no guarantee Iran will fully comply. No way to check. We'll just have to take their word.
Teh one is sitting America up for another failure.
Democrats will call it another win for Obama.

the talks between Iran and six western countries broke down when France...which was the ONLY western power to see through Iran's disingenuousness...insisted that the deal didn't go far enough.
Israel, of course, utterly rejects any deal with Iran...they know the Persian state is not bargaining in good faith.
Let's see how etwinkie...equally predictablly...tries to spin this to make Obama look good. That will be a tall mountain to climb.

Secretary of State Kerry said of the talks with Iran:
"Nobody has talked about getting rid of the current architecture of sanctions. The pressure will remain,"
What he FAILED to say is that President Obama has already secretly rolled back most of the sanctions. That's why he disingenuously refers to the "current architecture."
The pressure will remain??? Not bloody likely.
And the rift between the US and Israel is widening. Relations are nearly at an historic low.
Perhaps Obama is trying to egg the Israelis on to take out Iran's partially completed reactor and its uranium enrichment facilities. It would be totally in character for Obama to cause something to happen but not have his fingerprints on it. That's been his modus operandi as a "community organizer."

You're back-tracking cruise.
Your first post said "Obama had secretly ended sanctions against Iran?"
Well, that was a lie. So, now you're story is "President Obama has already secretly rolled back most of the sanctions" is that the same 'ended'?? And how can any of the is been a "secret" if the the WSJ, among others, reported if months ago? And We've had these high level talks in Geneva all this week---about a "secret"???
Whatever. I don't trust the Iranians either for what it's worth. But, please, et's be clear, it is well within the scope of the POTUS responsibilities to conduct foreigh policy. No agreement has been reached, no treaty has been signed. Until then--it's just more Obama bashing and cruise knows more than anyone else bullshit.

And who f*cking cares?
The only people hurt by sanctions are the everyday citizens. You think the power brokers are going hungry or without modern conveniences or medication and other necessities? We've been sanctioning Cuba for how many years? I don't think Castro has missed a lot of meals.

Minor footnote for blackedtape
"let's talk some more about the tea party. That's so much more important" Point well taken....except....
These Teabaggers morons want to be in control of the US Government. IMO, Foreign policy...especially when it come to yet another potential Middle East conflict, not to mention one with nuclear rammifications...should be left to people with people with operating brain cells.
I'd rather trust people like Obama, Kerry, Clinton--Hell...even President Romney or President Bush--either of them--than the likes of Rand Paul Ted Cruz or Gohmert. That's my point.

Just for Mpdodgson...
Funny how you say that foreign policy should be left to those with working brain cells. Well so far our current foreign policy leaves a lot to be desired. If not for the Russians lord knows what would have happened in Syria and the French and Israelis saved us from making another mistake regarding Iran. Perhaps some experience along with working brain cells is required.

"Until then--it's just more Obama bashing"
No, pal, it emphatically is NOT. I want the man stopped BEFORE he commits another disastrous f*ckup. And with a nuclear bomb, that could be unrepairable.
You left wingers would allow the idiot to take this country to the brink before you'd abandon your blind partisanship. Having the facility of foresight, I won't do that. I can see the potential ramifications.

Calm down. Everybody knows you hated President Obama before he was born. Maybe doubled-hated his parents.
You ought to retire to Iceland. It's mostly white and Christian, and kids have to take English in school. You'll hate not paying for medical care or health insurance, and Iceland has educated, independent women, but on the plus side you'll have a diet high in omega-3s to help limit any further cardiovascular damage caused by your extreme anger toward race, ethnicity, language, religion, gender, education, taxes, health care, poverty, wealth, climate change, gun ownership and yadda yadda yadda. The physiological effects of constant negativity could kill you. Iceland could save you.

"that could be unrepairable"
And then it would be irreparable. Jugxaposed indubitably.
How egregious pal.

Consult any of dozens of dictionaries of the English language. You will find unrepairable juxtaposed with its alternate -- irrepairable.
One example of the meaning is FUBAR, which perfectly describes Democrat zealots and Obama lovers who deny that 52 million Americans are losing their health insurance as a result of Obamacare.
